Web3.0 Meets Energy

Web 3.0 Meets Energy

Intro to Web 3.0

Although nomenclature for the web continues to be opaque, its development over the years can be generally categorized into three distinct phases — each building on the one before it.

Web 1.0, or the “read” phase, was about connecting information and getting on the internet. Web 2.0, or the “write” phase, is about connecting people into a web of social participation and allowing them to publish content. The next stage, Web 3.0, or the “execute” phase is just beginning. It is about dissolving the frameworks of websites, web apps and owned data and replacing it with shared data that can be accessed by services and smart contracts that can present and process that data in meaningful ways to the user. Web 3.0 will be a “read-write-execute” web.

Energy — The Next Generation

It will also move away from its current centralized energy grid in favor of a decentralized and ultimately distributed one that is cleaner, more efficient, more resilient, and lower cost.

The disaggregation of the current investor owned utility (IOU) monopolies is inevitable. One only needs to look to the breakup of the telecom industry as proof of the benefits gained when entrepreneurial creativity is granted access to a monopolized industry. Competitive business models, product sets and services emerge that drive down costs and expand capabilities. Think landlines to wireless.

Web 3.0 Meets Next Generation Energy

The powerful combination of technology and renewables will be explosive — in a positive way! By combining the network technology ingredients of blockchain and smart contracts with smart phones and wireless communications, individuals and small businesses can crowdfund their purchases of renewables and sell excess capacity directly to their neighbors, their com...
